Brian Joros: Coaching Requires Making Memories

The experience that young players have when playing sports will last forever. Ten, twenty, even forty years down the road, especially as they see their children playing sports, the players will remember the lessons they learned when playing games. They’ll remember if it was a fun sport. They’ll remember if their coach was nice or hard driving coach. The memories made will stick with the players and impact their sporting decisions as their lives continue.

The lessons that they learn in a sport are not just lessons that will impact their actions in the game but in life as well. A coach has the ability to leave an impact on how they communicate with others, their cooperation level with people, and how they set goals and work toward completing them. When they are in team situations at their job, they will remember what their coach taught them about working together and rallying the troops under the cause when necessary.

A coach should teach a strong work ethic. Many players will naturally be good at the sport and may thus not work as hard on their game as the other players who struggle with a certain aspect. Those players are the ones that if not taught how to push themselves, they will find themselves falling behind later in life when they paly or work with others who know how to buckle down, get down to brass tax, and push themselves to complete their goals.

Brian Joros has been a baseball coach for many years. The coach knows that when he is able to make an impact on the lives of his players on a deeper level than just the game, he is winning despite what they score may say. In winning championships and in losing seasons, Joros knows how to continue to teach his players to keep pushing themselves and to use their skills in life.
